For what it's worth, despite the menus being somewhat bombastic about it, all that is done by the "Quit GIMPS" options is that it adds NoMoreWork=1 to prime.txt. That's all. It doesn't delete account data or results or assignments or anything, it just stops acquiring work. Removing that line or changing it to 0 results in getting work again according to settings. So really the "Quit GIMPS" description is something of a misnomer, targeted at the broader distributed computing/home volunteers group who otherwise don't do much fiddling around on computers.
